About British Embassy School Ankara (BESA)

British Embassy School Ankara (BESA) is a British school following the National Curriculum of England and Wales, the International Primary Curriculum and the International Middle Years Curriculum, based in the grounds of the British Embassy in Ankara, Turkey. We are a co-educational school with around 200 children aged between 3 and 14, representing nearly 30 countries. We are known as a friendly and caring British school, which values a holistic approach to education. British Embassy School Ankara is a learning community where the academic and personal development of each child is at the heart of everything we do.

Learning is focussed on the development of skills throughout the school using curricula that support the children’s abilities to apply the knowledge they acquire in new and practical ways to deepen their understanding. From our Nursery class through to our Year 9 students, the thematic approach to learning taken by the IEYC (International Early Years Curriculum), IPC (International Primary Curriculum) and IMYC (International Middle Years Curriculum) provides a context that makes learning accessible yet challenging to children and young adults growing up in our diverse international community.

The rigour of the British Curriculum in English and Mathematics combines with international curricula to ensure that children make excellent academic progress at BESA, taking creative risks whilst supported by outstanding teaching and high quality learning environments. We commit to enabling children to leave our school not only having made outstanding progress but as global citizens who have the confidence to lead with creativity, integrity and a passion for their chosen pursuits.
